As my podcasting partner Stacy McCain and I were saying on last night’s episode of The Other Podcast, there’s some interesting connections starting to pop up. The Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avenatti has tweeted out that he’s representing Democrat activist Alexandra Chalupa, citing a Vox story trying to tie recent reporting on Chalupa’s work for the DNC to a suggestion in the summer of 2017 by Paul Manafort to “target Alexandra Chalupa, a political strategist and consultant for the DNC, for allegedly working with Ukrainian officials to hurt Trump’s candidacy.”
News of Chalupa’s activities broke much earlier. The Daily Caller ran a story connecting her and her anti-Trump efforts with Brett Kimberlin in March, 2017. The Kimberlin-run Manafort Watch website was put up in August, 2016, when Chalupa was taking particular interest in Paul Manafort. The site is still live, although nothing new has been posted there since September, 2016.
Curiouser and curiouser.
